Creamy Fig Smoothie

Refreshing, creamy and packed with good nutrition!

I made this yummy smoothie after receiving a huge bowl of fresh, ripe figs from my mother-in-law, my favorite treat. It is packed with potassium and omega 3 fatty acids, two things we could all use more of in our diets. Also this smoothie will NOT skyrocket your blood sugar levels like most do. It’s delicately sweet, creamy and very satisfying.
